¨The Global Sustainability Fellows Program¨, a pioneering educational program developed by The Sustainability Laboratory, launched its pilot session in collaboration with EARTH University with 20 students from all over the world. We are very happy to welcome on our campus a very varied group with students from Germany, Kenya, Mexico, Israel, France, Switzerland, USA, Australia, Canada, Ecuador, Portugal, Philippines, Hungary, Sweden, Ireland and Nigeria.

Most students are participating in Master programs or have recently graduated. Their fields of study are very relevant for the study of sustainability and we feel that the partnership of the Sustainability Laboratory with EARTH University is very beneficial as we are compatible and complementary. Together we offer a program with both a strong theoretical component as well as field work in communities close to both our campuses, in Guanacaste and Limon, a combination that the students value a lot.
